Next tonight, to the newest case of collecting disability, now under fire. A TV reality star that said he couldn't walk properly. Here's Neal Karlinsky. It's hard work to be a tuna fisherman. Reporter: On the national geographic channel reality show "Wicked tuna," Paul Hebert doesn't just show off lots of hard work, but big paychecks. Last season, I brought in just over $50,000 worth of fish. Reporter: But tonight he's under federal indictment for fraud. Charging documents claim that despite being "Capable of arduous physical labor," Hebert said he was disabled. That he couldn't walk properly, lift heavy weights, and that he had no income. In all, the indictment alleges Hebert took in $44,000 in social security and medicaid benefits between 2010 and 2013. TV's spotlight has burned other people, too. When Kathy Cashwell showed up on "The price is right," boy, did she spin that wheel. She pleaded guilty to fraud. And former NFL lineman brad Culpepper sued by his insurance company after they saw him dominating challenges on the TV show "Survivor." Culpepper maintains he suffers long-term physical injuries and did nothing wrong. Tonight, Hebert's attorney says his client is innocent. Neal Karlinsky, ABC news, Seattle.
